Common Injuries Caused by Fireworks
Every year, an estimate of 250 people suffer injuries caused by fireworks each day of July, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (SPSC). While people recognize that fireworks are dangerous, many people seem to believe that some fireworks are less dangerous than others. This belief leads to more injury! Firework injuries often include injuries to the face, eyes, hands, legs, and so much more of the body.
Even though they are used for celebration, they still can pose a significant health risk, so practice safety and caution when using fireworks.
